Broken Drag Adjustment Knob
May 12, 2014
Upon receiving my reel, a few things in particular stood out to me. 1. The box the reel came in was not sealed. (I expected a plastic cover, but maybe that is actually how it is supposed to come.) 2. The reel itself was very dusty. (This is what led me to believe that at one point and time there was a plastic cover, and somewhere along the line it was removed.) 3. There was no owners manual included with the reel. However this is my first time purchasing an Avet and therefor I do not know if they include a manual. Whether it was removed by Tackle Direct or not included by Avet, either way it was a big inconvenience and made the company look much more unprofessional then it originally seemed. (Whether it is Tackle Directs fault or Avets) 4. AFTER spooling my avet with over $150 in a braid/mono combination, I come to find out that there is a problem with the drag adjustment knob. For those who do not know, reels do not come with the proper drag amount already set. You must use a knob on the side of the reel (while in free spool) to increase or decrease the amount of drag at "strike". Without the adjustment knob working I can not increase my drag. It is currently sitting at about 24lbs drag at MAX. No where near the amount I need for the shark fishing that I do. Since my discovery of this problem I have contacted Avet in hope of some guidance to fix the adjustment knob. I have yet to hear back. Until either Tackle Direct or Avet assumes responsibility and resolves this issue, my $750 reel is an oversized paperweight and a reminder of the poor state that either Avet or Tackle Direct allowed there product to be sold in. Oh, and not to mention the $150 in fishing line that will go to waste if the reel has to be replaced. I'm sure this is a "rare" incident because I have seen other buyers of this same reel rave about its quality and functionality. However for me on this rare occasion, my avet is a piece of junk.
-Holds lots of line -Very beautiful reel -Loud clicker
-No owners manual -Drag adjustment knob broken -Reel box was not sealed -Reel was dirty (dusty) -Avet has yet to respond to my complaints
